Does Color Affect the Price of the Car?

Many people think that the color of the car does not affect its price. Buyers are more concerned about reliability, fuel efficiency and the price of individual parts of the car. However, as much as some people do not want to admit it, many of them give great importance to the exterior look and the color of their cars. A lot of them are ready to invest hundreds of dollars more just to get the desired color that they wish.

We all want to make our car seem like a status symbol and make it look the part when you roll out on the road. So some people greatly care if they get a particular model in blue, red, matte black of metallic color. Here are some statistics and research numbers that are related about the color choices among drivers in recent years.


Neutral Colors

The fastest selling cars are the ones with neutral colors. What makes a color neutral? Basically those are all the hues that do not jump out of the crowd and do not seem that much extravagant. Grey, silver, brown, ivory, maroon, black and dark blue are considered to be the basic neutral colors. The research also shows that if you want to sell your used car, these colors are the ones that sell the fastest.

Professionals in the field actually consider that white is also a neutral color and see it as one of the more popular choices. However, those same professionals say that dark blue and maroon should not be considered as neutral colors. In most cases this is considered to be a subjective opinion by the people and it is very hard to get the objective results. But the bottom line is that the thing that makes a color neutral is the fact that it does not stick out in the public.

Controversy Related to “White”

The popularity of vehicles with a white coat has been growing in recent years on a global level. On the streets you are currently bound to see a lot of vehicles sporting a white color coat, but the majority of them are usually small city vehicle or compact cars. The controversy related to the white color cars is related to the fact that a lot of firms and companies use white for their company vehicles. A lot of delivery cars or vans that belong to a certain company use white. This is due to the fact that using the white color makes the painted logo of the firm much noticeable on the car. Also the price a lot cheaper if you need to paint a whole bunch of cars white.

People who want to sell their used vehicles with a white hue are therefore in very strange predicament. The case in Europe is that most buyers are suspicious when buying used white vehicles. In a lot of cases the cars have been imported from other countries where they have been used as delivery cars or service automobiles by certain companies. A lot of buyers are thus suspicious when buying a white car as they assume that the car already has a lot of miles on it and has been battered in various sorts of delivery situations. The skepticism related to imported white vehicles is justified as this trend is used through the world.

But it does not have to be that every used white model car was a service car in the past. A lot of luxury models come in white, such as Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz cars. They offer their priciest and most luxurious models in white, which immediately excludes the fact that they are trying to save on the color choices of their new models.

In fact, there are more service cars being imported in others colors, such as grey, silver or dark blue. But this does not mean that the car is a bad one as there are some cases where a former service car has been used for a number of years without any significant problems related to it.

Some Official Statistics

The latest statistics show some interesting results related to the sales of newly manufactured cars. The research which was conducted for the year 2015 shows that the most of cars were in white, while black takes the number two spot and grey coming in at closer third.

On the global scale, 24% of newly made models that have been sold are in white. A close second is black with a 23% sales rate and grey comes in third with 15%, while the fourth spot is taken by silver which was sold in 14% of the cases. The statistics actually shows that white colors cars have become much more popular in recent years as the sales of them have surpassed black in two recent years. But black still remains a dominant choice in the luxury segment with a whopping 23%.

Recent Trends

According to the choices people made in recent years, there have been some interesting choices made by the buyers. Here is a breakdown devised by individual popular colors which have developed through the years.


Back in 2007, black was the primary color of most buyers, comprising 24% of the made sales. Before that Silver was the most trendy color and it was taken by a storm as more and more people started opting for Black which resulted in such a record high number of sales related to this color. But it was in 2008 already that the sales of White went up by 10% gearing up the market for the results that we have gotten the last year now.


Blue is considered to be a dark horse in the race. If we take into account all the variants that the Blue color comes in and not just the basic one, we are looking at a bestselling record. Blue has been sold in its various forms thoroughly the world in a large number. It is the fastest growing trend that is happening recently one which threatens to take the first spot very soon. Expect that the popularity of Blue to become even greater in the years to come.


Maintenance is perhaps the most difficult thing related to color. You can get a great color choices which looks great when it comes out of the shop, but after a few rides the dust settles and affects the beauty of the car no matter the vividness and beauty of the color before. In this case, white and black are the ones which require high maintenance. Simply saying, even the smallest spec of dirt can easily be distinguished on these colors. White has an advantage in this case as scratches and smudges are less noticeable compared to black. After washing the car it is much easier to clean out the dirt and make it less noticeable on white color cars than black color ones.

But regarding maintenance, grey and metallic silver color cars are the easiest ones to maintain. It is one of the reasons these models have become so popular as they look new for a longer period of time and are much easier to maintain. Many buyers chose their vehicles because of this fact. It makes it a lot easier for them to maintain their cars and thus opt to buy silver or grey.

But the general recurring problem in the market today is that there are many choices available, models brands and custom colors offered. You can rarely predict how well will the color fair and how much you need to maintain it. Due to many variations of colors that are available now, it is very hard to determine how regularly you will need to wash your car in order to keep it as factory made.

Not all White Colors are White

Not all white color variants are the same, which is also the case with many other colors. In order to get a unique color there is a long process. There are many different layers of colors and coatings being made. There are a lot of additions included which all amount to getting the final product. This is all necessary in order to make the color more distinguishable, attractive and sun resistant as well. Also, there is an added final piece to the puzzle which is the protective layer which is painted in the end which makes a lot of difference and is perhaps the most important part of the final color.

The Pricier the car the More Popular the Color

According to our research, buyers who get expensive limousine and SUV cars always carefully chose the color. If the question is “why?” the answers is quite simple. Buyers who wish to spend more money on their car want to get their money’s worth, that is why they are not reluctant to spend more in order to get the color that they really want. In some cases, buyers are ready to spend a small fortune just to get the right type of color that they desire.

But the situation related to used cars is much more different. Buyers who get a used caravan model have the color as the least important thing on their mind. There are some primary mechanical issues that have to be resolved. The most important thing fro buyers in this case is the shape of the engine and the fact if you have to add a 1000 dollars more for shock absorbers, plates, corrosion maintenance, and many other issues that can occur. In that case, color takes the back seat as the least important issue.

Least Popular Color Choices

The analysis of the market also shows that there is a number of colors which are considered to be the least popular ones. Actually, you might see these colors on streets or parking lots and think to yourself, “What were they thinking?” and is an appropriate reaction to some of the “unusual” colors that people chose. Thus, the colors to avoid include pink, yellow, purple and green.

Pink car? No, thank you!

However, this does not mean that the trend will not change in the far future. In fact, some experts claim that the rise of popularity of these colors is going to become greater in the future. Extravagant colors may get to become popular as a lot of drivers would want to exemplify their individuality and seem unique in some sort of a way.

Currently, 70% of the market comprises of white, black, silver and grey models. Some rising trend models include blue, red, brown and sand color which are gaining popularity in recent times. Only 4% of the sold cars have been in green, yellow or other unique colors. Thus we sincerely recommend that you do not do any experimenting for now and keep to the standard color choices.

Repair Costs

Surprisingly, there was not much of a difference in the repair costs of different colors. In fact, many of the people that we have asked do not mind the price that they need to pay of repairing metallic color cars. Although there were a lot of people who had some very bad experience when fixing some problems with demanding color choices, but the bottom line is that people are generally happy with what they need to pay for fixing the problem related to their car color.

Repairing a damaged spot on your car in many cases requires a high level of experts. It takes a lot of adjustments and mixing of colors to get just the right hue to cover the spot. If everything is done right, the damage done is going to be unnoticeable. But the greatest problems arise with older models. If you are trying to repaint a car where the sun has affected the original color, it is hard to find the right hue the cover the damaged spot.

When it comes to imported cars or and used automobiles, there is a lesser percentage of people who are going to take the color choice as an important factor.

Review In A Nutshell

Additionally, the vehicle boasts of user-friendly controls, copious rear legroom, and a pleasant ride quality. For starters, the new model is the freshest model to add to the existing line of top-selling small Toyota sedans which first debuted in the automotive scene in late ‘60’s.

There is no doubt that the Corolla receives a little of respect from most car reviewers, most will tell you, “Where is the flair and excitement? It’s simply a soulless appliance!” Even with such cynical comments, the Corolla has had a successful streak in the market for almost fifty years, and is now in its 11th generation.

For 2017, Toyota aims to continue shepherding the Corolla by making it another crowd-pleasing choice. Once you’re on the move, the ride quality is complaint, comfortable, and appealing. There is a plethora of features and technologies available on the infotainment system, which according to Toyota, has been improved and is now more easy-to-use and more responsive than ever before.

For Responsible, Not For Wild

We also love the copious rear leg-room it offers relative to other vehicles in its class. Throw in the high-resale value and laudable fuel economy ratings and there’s no doubt the new Corolla is an excellent option in its class.


However, if driver-engagement is your thing, then it’d be prudent to check out other vehicles in its class. They include the 2017 Honda Civic, the 2017 Mazda 3, Ford Focus, and the sporty Hyundai Elantra.

Compact But Tough – 2017 Kia Sorento – Release Date and Info

The fresh 2017 Kia Sorento is an appealing alternative to five- and seven-passenger crossover SUVs thanks to its versatile third-row seating configuration, voluptuous interior space, and ample features for the money.

Compact Or Mid-Size?

For starters, if you are trying to make out an understanding of what the concept of the Kia Sorento is all about, here is the preview. It occupies a middle ground between midsize and compact SUVs. The interior quality, space, and design closely mimic that of a compact SUV, while the performance is arguably that of a midsize SUV. For 2017, however, latest Kia Sorento news indicate the balance has tilted more towards one side than the other.

Its dimensions grow a bit larger literally and figuratively. In fact, Kia says the newest Kia Sorento 2017 is perhaps the best alternative to more sophisticated family crossovers like the Toyota Highlander. Also, it’s more akin to two-row crossovers like the Ford Edge, given its available five – and seven-passenger configurations.

Greater Interior Space

Besides the comparisons, the newest model also tacks on some few changes like greater interior space. Although negligible to the ‘naked eye’ they are nonetheless welcome. The driving refinement is also said to be refined, at least according to the South Korea automaker. The cabin materials are upscale and the technologies better than before. There’s no doubt that its styling is more attractive inside and out.

Other changes can be found on its mechanical underpinnings. They include an upgraded suspension system, a strengthened structure, an improved steering, and more refined driving experience.

Resilient Competition

Overall, we’re pleased by the latest 2017 Kia Sorento redesigns. However, rivals have also grown significantly and so have their redesigns and changes too. solid contenders in this class that will have to battle in out with the Sorento include the recently redesigned and released 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe, Ford Edge, Toyota Highlander, and the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Japan Vs Germany – 2017 Mazda 6 Review

Undoubtedly a fine choice for a midsize sedan, the new 2017 Mazda 6 redesign offers it a new lease of life with new features such as a sporty handling, technology laden interior, smooth and responsive powertrain, stylish looks, excellent fuel economy ratings, and a quick acceleration. The Mazda 6 release date should be expected sometime in February 2017.

Like The Best?

Despite the inability to garner a significant fanatic following relative to other models in its class, the Mazda 6 remains one of the best sedans available today, and comes with parallel features such as those of the segment’s best. In fact, its features and technology list go tire-to-tire with German vehicles. In addition to the above hype (actually it isn’t), the newest member also retains some of the defining hallmarks of the Mazda 6: spacious cabin, impressive fuel economy, and agile handling.


Another appealing feature about the Mazda 6 2017 is its superb combination of performance, and fuel economy. The two features are metaphorically the opposite poles of a magnet, and both can hardly work seamlessly in the same situation. With the available i-Eloop system, Mazda says the new model should be able to achieve fuel economy ratings of about 32 mpg in combined city/highway driving. It does this without compromising the performance, which the automaker says comes with a solid acceleration figure adequate enough to enable you carve through city traffic or getting up to highway speeds.

More Advanced Design?

The 2017 Mazda 6 interior has also seen some new developments too. The design is much more refined, as are the technologies. The infotainment system now offers a faster response rate and comes with high-quality graphics. The exterior visibility is excellent. The new vehicle isn’t without gripes, however. The ride quality is somehow stiffer for a car within that price range, there’s no option for an engine upgrade, and the level of athleticism is average relative to other vehicles in its class.

Rivals include the Ford Fusion, the “A” rated Honda Accord, Kia Optima, Toyota Camry, and the Subaru Legacy.

2017 Mazda 6 Review of Trims

Three trims, as of this writing, are available for the 2017 Mazda 6: Grand Touring, Sport, and Touring – the exact same lineup offered for the 2017 Mazda CX-5, apparently.
